Check the Advanced Knowledge Technologies department at the University of Aberdeen (Scotland). Professor Alun Preece is one of those involved with that project. This is the only reference that appears close, but you did not indicate the type of process or material you were needing to test - sorry.W. Carl Erickson

Preece test is the following ASTM test:
A191- Discontinued 1942: Test Method for Uniformity of CoatIng by the Preece Test (Copper Sulfate Dip) on Zinc-Coated (Galvanized) Iron or Steel Articles Replaced by ASTM ASTM A239 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet].Francesca Assone

Test still appears as referenced standard for items galvanized See for example kortick.com catalog references to hot galvanized hardware they make. Others also cite so - it is still alive and well either as shorthand for current standards or still employed as original.
